SPH Red Apple Day collected 166 units of blood from 280 donors

Singapore, 25 Jan 2011 - The SPH Red Apple Day held today at the Singapore Press Holdings' News Centre auditorium attracted 280 donors and collected a total of 166 units of blood.

The annual blood donation drive was jointly organised with the Singapore Red Cross Society. Donors included SPH staff
as well as members of the public. This year’s theme was “Celebrate a new year. Save a life.” Traditionally, the event was held in the middle of the year. From this year onwards, SPH has decided to hold an additional blood donation drive at the beginning of the year in anticipation of the seasonal dip in blood stocks during the festive season.

Ms Ginney Lim, Executive Vice President of Corporate Communications, SPH, said: “We are extremely grateful for the support of the donors, staff, volunteers and sponsors in making SPH Red Apple Day a success. As an active corporate citizen, SPH is glad to have the opportunity to work with other community partners, like the Red Cross, to share the gift of life with those in need. It is always gratifying to be of service, especially during times of expected shortfall like this festive period.”

The SPH Red Apple Day is supported by SPH MediaBoxOffice, AsiaOne, SPH UnionWorks´ 91.3 FM and Radio 100.3, Marigold, Cerebos, Gardenia, Nestle, Centrum and Benelux.
